We ate so much in Berlin. So much. It was glorious, a gastronomical festival. We had ice cream every day (no photos, too busy eating it) and literally satisfied every hungry whim we had. Amazing.

Coco Frenzy

I was at Chiswick Farmers Market last Sunday. It’s a cute little market, tucked away in Dukes Meadows near the river. I took a group there for work and between us we bought champagne, olives, beef burgers, Moroccan flatbreads, various vegetables, macarons and cupcakes. The macarons and cupcakes were bought from the lovely Bianca at Coco Frenzy, pictured above. Her stall was filled with beautiful treats – so beautiful that it pained me slightly to open the macarons the next day to share with my friends. The consensus was, however, that they were delicious. I asked Bianca where she had studied to be a chocolatier and she told me she had studied back home. I asked her where home was and she said Indonesia! What a coincidence. She will also be setting up a stall at the Halal Bihalal celebration at the ambassador’s house in September, so I’m sure we’ll be seeing her again. For now, check her out at the Coco Frenzy website or drop by Chiswick Farmers Market on a Sunday and say hello.



Wanderlust

I decided to get lost in town today. I came out of my Indonesian class and just fancied wandering around. I went down a posh-looking street, meandered a bit, and ended up on New Bond Street. Then I took a completely new route to Embankment. I must say, considering how awful my sense of direction is normally, luck was on my side today. It was a photogenic route too.

With my sunglasses on and camera out, a couple of tour hawkers pounced on me at Piccadilly Circus, shouting ‘NI HAO! KONNICHIWA! TOUR??’ and waving leaflets in my face. An interesting glimpse of the London tourist experience!
